Classical Afternoon w/Sarah Hagen
Canadian pianist Sarah Hagen has been heard in concert halls and on the airwaves throughout North America and Europe. Her interpretations have been described as “outstandingly inventive,” performed with “infinite skill.”
A visionary and an idealist, Sarah’s performances are conceptually innovative, involving photography, dance and theatre. She is the Artistic Director for Pro’ject Sound, a performance project involving live piano with large-scale projected images.
She curates, hosts, and performs on numerous concert series in BC, sharing the stage with artists from around the world.
An avid collaborator, Sarah has performed with cellist Ariel Barnes, violinist Martin Chalifour, tenor Benjamin Butterfield, Trio Accord, Ballet Victoria, the Emily Carr String Quartet, among many others, and has appeared as soloist with the Victoria Symphony under the baton of Mei-Ann Chen, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony conducted by Mark Skazinetsky, and the Symphony Orchestra of the Pacific with conductor Arthur Arnold.
Joan Blackman, Associate Concertmaster of the Vancouver Symphony, enjoys a vibrant and varied musical life. Ms. Blackman is the Artistic Director of Vancouver’s Vetta Chamber Music and Recital Society, and is also a member of the acclaimed American String Project, which brings together concertmasters and soloists throughout North America. She has performed and recorded as soloist with the Vancouver Symphony, Victoria Symphony, CBC Radio Orchestra, and the Banff Festival Orchestra.
